About UN CC:Learn

The One UN Climate Change Learning Partnership (UN CC:Learn) is a collaborative initiative involving 33 multilateral organizations which supports countries in designing and implementing country-driven, results-oriented and sustainable learning to address climate change. The initiative was launched at the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Summit.

UN CC:Learn is included in the "One UN Climate Change Action Framework" of the UN System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB). The CEB framework aims at maximizing existing synergies, eliminating duplication and optimizing the impact of the collective effort of UN organizations in combatting climate change.

UN CC:Learn contributes to the implementation of Article 6 of the UNFCCC on training, education and public awareness-raising, and the Doha Work Programme.

The Secretariat for UN CC:Learn is provided by the UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).


UN CC:Learn Objectives

The overall goal of UN CC:Learn remains the creation of sustainable individual and institutional capacities, in developing and transition countries, to plan and implement effective climate change actions.

  • At the global level, UN CC:Learn seeks to enhance information-exchange, develop common learning materials, and coordinate learning interventions through collaboration of UN agencies and other partners and programmes.
  • At the national level, UN CC:Learn aims to advance systematic and results-based approaches to climate change learning and skills development, working with national and regional institutions.
